As all 41 workers who were trapped inside the Uttarakhand tunnel were rescued on Tuesday evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded the labourers for their “courage and patience”.
Soon after the workers were brought out of the tunnel, PM Modi saluted the spirit of those involved in the operation and said their courage and resolve have given a new life to them.
‘Everyone involved in the mission has created an amazing example of humanity and teamwork,” he said in a post on X.
Wishing the rescued workers good health and well-being, he said their courage and patience inspire everyone.
”It is a matter of great satisfaction that these friends of ours will meet their dear ones after a long wait,” PM Modi said, asserting that the patience and courage of their family members cannot be praised enough.
उत्तरकाशी में हमारे श्रमिक भाइयों के रेस्क्यू ऑपरेशन की सफलता हर किसी को भावुक कर देने वाली है।
टनल में जो साथी फंसे हुए थे, उनसे मैं कहना चाहता हूं कि आपका साहस और धैर्य हर किसी को प्रेरित कर रहा है। मैं आप सभी की कुशलता और उत्तम स्वास्थ्य की कामना करता हूं।
